i think the shadow just below the SYF on the left is Phil's shoulder, and he is looking towards Garcia !!!! but still Phil definitely deserves better!!!

Agree that the dark foreground shape is probably Phil... and that we can do better. Can anyone provide me with: the original shot they're using, and a few shots of Phil (waist up) I can attempt a proper retouching that includes him at least...

edit - the Phil pix should be from the era if possible, and different angles, to see what works.

The Stealie has been added alongside the original image, not over the top of it, so it isn't actually obscuring anything. (Everybody knows this is The Ark, Boston, April 21 1969 - yes?)

Yes, and yes; I noticed in Festival Express (within a yr or so) that Phil often walked back to adjust his amp, etc, with Jerry well out front, stage right, as here, and him wandering between Bob and Jerry and the drummers while doing so...or, just plain wandering.

Same set up - slightly different shot. Mr Constanten makes an appearance on the right, and could that be Phantom Phil behind Bob?

Where's Waldo? errr...Phil?

I'd say you found him.
